Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
The "Clone Wars" goes back to the original Star Wars film when Obi-Wan Kenobi tells Luke Skywalker that he was once a Jedi knight the same as your father and that they fought together in the Clone Wars. Since that moment fans have been obsessed with what the clone wars were. This new TV series takes place immediately after the events of Star Wars-Episode II: Attack of the Clones. The series follows Obi-Wan Kenobi and his apprentice Anakin Skywalker and introduces us to some new characters such as Ahsoka Tano a girl Jedi knight as well as characters we already know.]]>

Want to introduce your kids to the epic you loved growing up, this is the perfect gift.
Stop waiting for single episodes to appear on cable, and feel the force flow through your blu-ray player.
The whole offering is simply quite tasty and would appeal to open-minded fantasy enthusiasts of all types. The special features are slim but there's one for each disc and all are worthwhile. The transfer comes across clearly on this regular set of DVDs played through on a Blu-ray player; looks good and sharp. There is a buying option between a regular set and a regular set that comes with a colorful booklet that appeals more to collectors than the average consumer but if you're that Star Wars enthusiast the booklet will be nice to have.
When a show says its pushing for 5 seasons, you generally tend to get very nervous, especially since an entire 1st season and a motion picture tanked your expectations, being "mediocre" at best. But now this new DVD release has really swept me off my feet! Star Wars never looked so good on TV! The acting is superb (with a few exceptions I'll roll out later), the story is never bland (although it suffers from unbelievably goofy premises) and each and every episode is able to hold the other up by its caliber in brilliance! It literally shoots the standards of the upcoming seasons by light-years!
The animation has made great strives and Season 2 is not shy when it comes to proving itself. The character models themselves interact with the environment, climate and other characters much more realistically. I can't even think of any particular technical hiccup off the top of my head -- not one -- from this season, which is a huge plus, in my opinion.
One technical issue I know the Clone Wars is suffering from though is that they haven't perfected the art of RAIN! I can't think of a single episode with a grey cloud in the sky, which is pretty unrealistic if you ask me. Its not a huge complaint, just a technical obstacle I'd like to see this show overcome.
The character's models could be as fantastic as they please: the characters 'themselves', however, could definitely use some tweaking. In a time-block of half an hour (22 minutes excluding commercial breaks), if amazing what both Seasons have been able to pull off. Sometimes the acting sounds forced, though, and dialogue is painfully rushed (I'm looking at you, Ahsoka and Anakin!).Read more ›
Being a boxset, this contains all 22 episodes of season 2. There are a few featurettes focusing on how some of the larger story arcs in season 2 were created. I wish they had given us a small commentary on each episode like they did in the season 1 boxset, but this isn't bad at all.
Season 2 boasted some terrific story arcs. Among my favorites were the Geonosis 4 parter. The first 2 episodes in this arc contain one of the most kick butt ground battles. I also enjoyed the Mandalore trilogy. Some viewers found this trilogy to be contrary to the Expanded Universe, but I don't see that. So their are a few peaceful Mandalorians. Who is to say that their warrior culture won't win out in the end. And Pre Viszla(hope I'm spelling that correctly), was such a ruthless villain. Hats off to John Favreau for a thrilling performance, and I'm really digging that darksaber!(I buy a few of Hasbro's action figures and vehicles from this show so I can get a better feel for what I'm seeing, by the way. Now if they'd only release that supertank.)
I also got to see one of my favorite characters again in season 2. Cad Bane got his own trilogy. As did another one of my favs: Boba Fett, who was brought to life by the incredible voice talent of Daniel Logan. Bounty hunters in the Star Wars universe have always interested me, so these 6 episodes were such a treat. So was the 2 part story arc featuring General Grievous.Read more ›
